Stone: Al Gore Following Nixon Path (Newsmax, 6/08/07)

Gore, [Roger] Stone said, "is a giant compared to the Democrats who are running for president. His popularity is at an all-time high; he has turned out to be right as far as his party is concerned about the two major issues of the day — the war, where he's been the most articulate critic, and global warming, which is his signature issue that he was in the wilderness on and now everyone thinks it's true."

Stone doubted that there is "enough room in this race for both Vice President Gore and Barack Obama." He said, "Gore is the real anti-war candidate — right on the war from the beginning and with the stature to end the war. Barack Obama would kind of suction-off anti-war votes, and I'm not sure Gore can afford that. But he can afford to watch and see how Obama develops his opinions. If it looks like he can't take Hillary, there's only one person alive who can beat her for the nomination and that's Al Gore."

Nothing would be better for Ms Clinton than to be able to differentiate herself from an Al Gore to her Left and thus appear more of a centrist. The more like her husband she runs the better her chances.
